craft – a café in paris

What a beautiful black and white cafe. It is simple and stark, the prefect backdrop for broody creatives who need a smart environment to do good work. The colorful pens and pencils add a colorful touch, and the marble lamps with brass keys for the switch are just…i could die. But instead, I could work here all day

the cult of done manifesto


The Cult of Done Manifesto

  1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion.
  2. Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done.
  3. There is no editing stage.
  4. Pretending you know what you’re doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you’re doing even if you don’t and do it.
  5. Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it.
  6. The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done.
  7. Once you’re done you can throw it away.
  8. Laugh at perfection. It’s boring and keeps you from being done.
  9. People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right.
  10. Failure counts as done. So do mistakes.
  11. Destruction is a variant of done.
  12. If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done.
  13. Done is the engine of more.

This goes on the list of stuff that makes me feel like i haven’t done enough stuff and motivates me to get stuff done. Or get a rubix cube at least.

design crush :: coralie bickford-smith

Coralie Bickford-Smith designs beautiful book cover series that utterly melts me away. The care she puts into her work, producing meaningful designs extends from ideation all the way to the materials, binding, and final output.

push pop’s interactive digital books

When I was 10, what I most wanted was the book that Penny used in Inspector Gadget. I wonder what cartoons will inspire technology in the next 20 years…

book crush :: katsumi komagata

such beautiful, well made books for children. Komagata’s website does not do the books justice, actually holding them in your hands, flipping through them.
